Pedagogy and Didactics in Translation and Interpreting

Guest Editor: Anabel Galán-Mañas, Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona

The number of studies on the acquisition of the translation competency has increased in the last few decades and they have evolved based on the pedagogical approaches of the moment. Although the first didactic proposals for translator and interpreter training focused on contrastive studies, with time, the process acquired more importance. In this line, learning-objective based proposals appeared (Delisle, 1980, 1983) and, then, with the adoption of a constructivist approach, translation-task based (Hurtado, 1996, 1999; González Davies, 2003, 2004) or competency-based (Kelly, 2005; Hurtado, 2007, 2008) proposals were developed.

This call aims to collect papers based on original empirical or conceptual research and faculty experience (see section policies) concerning translator and interpreter training, such as curriculum design (objectives, competencies, contents, progression, text selection), evaluation, e-learning, introduction to translation, specialized translation (economic, legal, technical, scientific, commercial, audiovisual, literary, translation and accessibility, translation and localization, etc.), translation into the B language, introduction to interpreting, consecutive interpreting, simultaneous interpreting, sign-language interpreting, CAT tools, revision, post-editing, first and second language teaching for translators and interpreters, translation project management, terminology and documentation, pre-professional internships and labor market insertion, educational quality, continuing faculty education, among others. Reviews of recently published books on some of the topics mentioned are also welcome.
